In a statement, the Bank disclosed that sponsoring the conference is part of its contribution to the development of local content competencies amongst the indigenous oil and gas operators. In addition, it is also putting up a stand to show case its strength in financing specialized projects in the industry.
NOG9 is the premier industry event for professionals, service industries and suppliers to gather and discuss common issues of special mineral development. Technological innovations and forums on economic, social, and political aspects of resource development and environmental protection have been the mainstay of this August gathering.
The statement further revealed that the conference will afford Diamond Bank the opportunity to exhibit its products that are beneficial to participants with a view to creating awareness and assisting the development of Nigerian oil & gas industry especially the local content initiative which is very technical as well as capital intensive. It will also serve as a forum for the Bank to identify constraints that Nigerian contractors face, which are militating against their competitive and active participation in the oil and gas sector.
